    When you buy... you need to consider what you will use it for. It is truly a 72 hr bag? Or... do you plan on hoofing it for weeks on end? Will you be climbing mountainous terrain with it? Do you want everything inside it... or do you want to hang objects from it? Things like this determine if you need a waist belt (for a lot of weight... i.e., carrying extra items for a small child) or if you can just go with a smaller pack and a chest strap (which I highly recommend...) Of course, these can be added after the fact as well... but a waist belt is usually integral to a pack. Do you want a hard frame, or no frame? Do you want an internal or external frame (so you can pull the pack off and use the frame for carrying other items)? It all depends on how you plan to use it. Learn from others... sure... but buy what you need and can afford, not what someone else has just because they recommend it. Their situation is very different than yours. And... I very much expect that you will buy one... use it, but dislike something about it, and over time will try and buy others. But... have something... even if it's not the "ideal" pack for your situation.

    In a quick roundabout it's a Maxpedition Vulture II in OD with a usgi canteen, cup and pouch on the side and a Cold Steel Latin machete on the other. My UglyStick 2 piece also gets tied off with the machete side. That's a usgi poncho liner on top and a Recon III sleeping bag on the bottom strapped off. In the pack is a variety of food, (mre entree's, peanut butter, granola, spice mix, bouillon cubes, etc) and the necessaries for fire, water, shelter, food gathering, mapping, health care, alternative clothing. (OD BDU's) Things like headgear, knives, 550, fishing kit, sewing kit, poncho, gloves, survival books, cards, lighters, firesteel, petroleum jelly soaked cotton balls, vitamins, antibiotics, hygeine supplies, towel, Katadyn mini ceramic water filter, water purification tablets, hand saw, tweezers, nailclippers, cooking utensils, more 550, spare fishing line, flashlight and extra batteries, spare pistol mags, slingshot, etc, etc.

    That's sound advice.

    Adjust your packing list for the season. Extreme cold, summer, and mild temps. No need to carry a -30 degree sleeping bag in June.

    Yeah! I've found that surplus stores aren't what they used to be. They aren't places you can find deals anymore. Their only specialty is getting items you can only find there...and you pay for it! I like CheaperThanDirt.com (excpet for ammo).

    True most all surplus stores sell chinese product made for well, surplus/dollar stores. Try checking our old hardware stores, old western auto stores, go antiquing in small towns where you live, even old run down gas stations that have dusty items on pegboards behind the register. I have found original Stanley tools back when they were made here in the U.S. (Bridgeport, CT) now sold in walmart made in china. The new stuff is not bad, But I picked up the original Stanley tools for the old original faded price and the old guy was gentleman and I was happy to buy all he was willing to sell. I have found old signs, soda crates, Deitz oil lamps, railroad items, Hand pumps and had a blast with family and met some great folks along the way. I hope this helps. Good luck!

    Remember when you could buy ammo at a feed store and rifles at the Gibsons or Motts five and dimes? Man, I miss those days...and I'm only 38.

    Yup, you could dig out a couple of sks rifles out of a wooden barrel in woolworths in downtown Houston and spend less than a hundred bucks. I thought I had a handy parts/donor gun and ended up with two pretty good rifles. I'm a bit older than you and i miss them days too. You must have great memories of a paw-paw, dad or uncle taking you to those places and teaching hunting and fishing and family traditions.
    Thank you for your service TCM, its the gentlemen like you that made it possible for all of us to live in a free country.
    But for how much longer? Lets all hang together and work together for those who can't or never made it back because they already did. God Bless you and yours sir. Thank you for your service! And God Bless America.
